Went to see this movie the other night on impulse and without knowing anything at all. Not a huge fan of either of the leads but for some reason i just had this idea in my head that it would be worth it. I had no idea what i was in for but i treated myself to an IMAX ticket. I sat down and got comfly with some popcorn...

The start sequence is so amazing and probably one of the only place for you go grab a breath before all hell breaks loose, literally. By the time the movie was over i had not even touched my pop corn and had almost torn the arm of the chair from the tension. My heart was racing but i was smiling my head off and wanted to watch it all over again. I could have watched another 5 hours of this movie yet it was perfect the length it is.

I am simply dazzled and amazed by the work that went in by everyone involved in making this, there were no short cuts or cheap shots. the acting is beyond the call of duty and must have been such a mind job. Bullock is outstanding and deserves a massive reward for her performance. Clooney just stole my heart from the beginning and fit into his role nice and snug.

Seriously, do yourself a favour and treat yourself to watching this superb movie with a huge screen and roaring sound that shakes the ground. I am most certainly going to see this again. Then im getting the bluray.

TOP 100 REVIEWERon 21 November 2013
This technically brilliant film contains beautiful shots of the earth viewed from space, there are some tense moments as the two space workers (Clooney and Bullock) struggle to survive when they find themselves stranded after a disaster not of their making and it is intriguing to watch them floating about surrounded by a motley collection of objects and dealing with weightlessness in a matter of fact way, at least until calamity strikes. As with most adventure films, the desire to create ever more exciting situations sends plausibility spinning into the outer galaxies and it is probably an advantage to be ignorant of some of the basic laws of physics. At the end, despite the ludicrous twists, the film succeeds in leaving you with a sobering sense of mortality combined with the strengh of the will to survive.

"Gravity" is definitely greatly enhanced if seen on a large screen in 3D.

Wow! It needs more than one viewing to follow everything ( I am 76, after all ), and I recommend listening to the sound with headphones to get the full claustrophobic effect. Stunning.

A gripping film with stunning visual effects. Althoughnit was so much better in 3D it is still a breathtaking experience in 2D still. The soundtrack is perfect and the acting is superb. It is a film that anyone can watch and enjoy. The DVD comes with a brilliant short film linked to Gravity which is also very entertaining. Another thing I love about this film is the favt it is all in real time (uncut) which means you really get the feel of the tension and fear the astronauts are going through. A film that will not be forgotten and a DVD that shoukd be owned in every household.

I was put off from watching this film because I am not the biggest fan of Sandra bullock, but am glad I changed my mind, because I just loved her in this film, so for me she has changed my mind, well almost. The picture plus sound is amazing and it sounds stunning through your surround sound system, especially when the meteorite storm hits, and the ending was just stunning, plus what a beautiful and original soundtrack. This is a great film which I will never watch in 2D.

I watched this on my 3D projector last night for the first time, and I was blown away immediately by how good it looks and sounds, and stayed that way until the credits rolled. This is the all-time best demo film to show off your AV system's 3D, picture and audio. Dredd and Pacific Rim come a close second and third.

As for the story, its a bit far fetched, but don't let it dissuade you from buying, The moment to moment beauty of the Earth and space, and the chaos of all the worlds satelites exploding will keep you glued to the screen waiting to see what happens next.

This film is so well made I found myself being drawn in and feeling genuinely nervous and surprised in parts. Part of this is due to the perfect 3D implementation, it really drives home the claustrophobic feeling of the interiors, and the endless expanse of space, without any cheap gags or "in your face" effects. The convincing zero or "micro" gravity and CGI are so well done that you instantly forget you are watching an effects film and focus purely on the action on screen.

A special mention should be made regarding the sound design, everything sounds like it should out in space and gives a real sense of place, With no OTT scoring you are allowed to listen to and appreciate the subtlety of every sound, deep silence and roaring explosions.

If you are even slightly interested in 3D films, or just want to see a dramatic thrill ride you seriously must add this to your wanted list.

After seeing this in cinemas and really enjoying it, I was really hesitant about getting it for home viewing. Its obvious that its visuals at home wont really match a cinema viewing and I was worried it wouldn't live up to it.
I was wrong... Even on my reasonably small screen (30 inch) it still looked incredible, and in a dark room with surround sound it still didn't fail to suck me right in. And once you feel like you're there (which this movie does really well) it has you.

But if you do decide to watch this movie, give you your 100% undivided attention. Don't check your phone every 5 minutes, dont keep pausing it, Its only 87 minutes long. I'm being serious, the movie is so immersive and the more you let it immerse you the more you will enjoy it.

I have never felt so tense watching a movie before, the last 10 minutes with Bullock going to earth (despite me seeing it before), my toes and fingers was curled up tight, and I was so close to the edge of my seat I would of fallen off if the film dragged me any closer.

If you really enjoy films, its at least worth a watch, just to see how impressive the cinematography is. And with the bad reviews claiming its lack of plot, I recommend not listening. In all honesty it doesn't have the most developed script, but its so called "weak plot" is more them trying to keep the plot simple and not over complicating what is in essence a movie about the human urge of wanting to survive, and I don't think a lot of people will of got immersed the same way I did. A few of people I know who watched it in cinema with friends didn't like it but upon watching it alone was totally sucked in, so just illuminate all distractions. :P

Its not everyone's cup of tea but if you really can be sucked into a movie then I highly recommend it.

Also with everyone else recommending different visual ways of watching it, I really recommend a good sound system. The sound designers used the emptiness of space and the sound in the suit to their advantage. With a good sound system you really will feel every blow when Bullock is being thrown around.

PICTURE - Firstly, I did not buy the 3D version, so I cannot comment on this aspect of it. Outside of that, the picture quality is absolutely outstanding! Crisp, clean, rich, vivid, perfection - a beautiful 'test disc' for any TV or Blu-ray player. As for the CG.... well the entire movie is CG with the exception of the actors' faces. It's so good that I didn't know that until I saw the extras!

SOUND - Wow! Just, wow! I have spent a lot of money on my 5.1 and movies like this make it all worthwhile. The full range of my speakers were stretched and tested, with outstanding results. The big bangs to the stark 'silence' to the eerie orchestral arrangement are all perfect in pitch, power and pace.

MOVIE - Great story with a lot of metaphorical motifs throughout. Pace was excellent and the overall running time was only 90 minutes so, epic is scope but you don't need half a day to enjoy it. You are immediately sucked into the world of our heroine and kept there - firmly perched on the edge of your seat!

EXTRAS - I love watching additional content but when a movie wins a host of awards for picture and sound etc. you hope they really delve into every detail of how they achieved this. Well, nearly 3 hours later and I am gobsmacked. No stone left unturned and it's all good stuff, not the usual clatter of concept art stills and repetitive commentary.

JUST BUY IT!!!!

I didn't see this in the cinema but watching it at home was an amazing experience all the same. You need to have the 5:1 system turned up high as the sound makes it - but ironically it's the sudden silences that create the effect. My wife , who doesn't normally like science fiction, thought it was amazing as well
